Investigative journalist Martin Boundary and his wife Twyla, a Capitol Hill lawyer, are back, and in grave danger when Twyla's crossword puzzle obsession inadvertently exposes a ruthless insider trading ring on Capitol Hill. Snake Kobb, a mastermind of the scheme, is the most cold-blooded killer ever to set foot in the corridors of Congress. A cast of unforgettable characters assists the Boundarys in their perilous quest to expose the fraud, including gutsy African-American journalist Dorset Toomey and the beautiful, foul-mouthed Penelope Preston, a recent J-school graduate with nerves of steel. Murder, kidnapping, arson--no crime is beyond the pale for Kobb and his bloodthirsty crew, who are intent on protecting billions of dollars in illegal profits. Boundary and his associates risk their lives and their careers to expose the perpetrators. This is the second book in the popular Martin and Twyla Boundary suspense series.
